Fargo National Cemetery is a new 4.82-acre Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) national cemetery located in southeast North Dakota. The cemetery will serve the burial needs of more than 30,000 Veterans, their spouses and eligible family members.
This is the first national cemetery built in North Dakota and is part of the VA National Cemetery Administration Rural Initiative to provide access to VA burial benefits for Veterans who reside in rural areas and who have not previously had reasonable access to a national or state Veterans cemetery.
The cemetery was dedicated on September 7, 2019. First interments will take place shortly thereafter. The first phase of cemetery development will offer more than 3,000 casket and cremation spaces to accommodate burials for the next 10 years. The cemetery will provide burials for caskets, in-ground and columbarium burials for cremations, as well as a memorial wall for remains that are unrecoverable or identified, were buried at sea, donated to science or cremated and remains scattered.
